What is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic dentistry is a philosophy that honors the relationship between oral and systemic health – acknowledging that what happens in the mouth impacts physical health just as physical health impacts the teeth and gums. But this is not a philosophy based on esoteric teachings or vague connections, rather it is a practice based on the latest science and a willingness to adapt as new information comes to light.
There is an established and proven link between oral and systemic health. Oral health issues such as gum disease are known risk factors for heart attack, stroke, respiratory problems, pregnancy complications, and even dementia and Alzheimer’s. Holistic family dentistry takes these things into account in both preventive and treatment-based therapies to help protect and improve the overall health of the patient.
In addition to helping prevent systemic health issues caused by oral disease, holistic dentistry considers the impact treatments can have on long-term physical health. This is why holistic family dentists like Dr. Michael Negru choose to maintain mercury-free practices, a move that not only protects the health and beauty of your smile, but offers alternatives that are stronger and more reliable as well.
